    Wow, nice catts. I wish I could grow them like that! *starts dreaming*

    Longwood Gardens in PA, right? I love going there, been there three times I think--they have great plants and fountain shows.

    Bill thanks for the wonderful pictures!!! I love B. digbyana and all its hybrids and being in your "to buy" list I believe you have the name... Because my love with B. digbyana is not a mutual feeling I hope I will get its hybrids to like me more...

    Margo, the name I have for the first pic is Brassolaeliocattleya g. Rubens Verde cv Chantilly Green. At least that is what I copied off the tag at Longwood. It really is a beautiful flower and one that I remember vividly of all the beautiful orchids there.

    Just beautiful, Bill...You certainly do know how to grow orchids! I like the top one also, but I also like Chocolate Drop, which I have. Tell me, does C.D. have any smell? It's not bloomed yet for me...Betty in Texas

    Bill, i spent 3 days at longwood garden show. Your pictures i think were from the orchid room. Which is open all year long. They have 700 orchids on display with 30,000 in reserve. They have 30 of each plant. As one orchid fades they replace it. I got those firgures from the currator. I should have pushed to see the greenhouse which houses the 30,000 orchid.
